This particular Hamilton figure was one of his
very first McElroy style figures and was made in the late 1970's
more than likely around 1978. This was when he was working directly
under the direct influence of the McElroy brothers. This figure was
built for William "Pretty Bop" Franklin who was a Chicago vent.
The head is cast in fiberglass and has the following functions: Slot
jaw, upper lip movement ,winkers / blinkers and side to side moving
eyes by weighted method. The body and hands are McElroy style and it
does have the McElroy style cradle. The control stick is also set up
like the McElroy figures.
A truly great figure!!
